I’m sitting here on Super Bowl Sunday watching a marathon of Ghost Hunters, and I thought that I would talk about GHI’s last episode. GHI ratings have dropped just a little, coming in with a modest 1.221 million (1.234 previous week) viewers for the “Army of the Dead” episode. Maybe the numbers have hit bottom and GHI will rebound?
The new cast has yet to establish itself. They seem to be moving to a more “Ghost Adventures” style of ghost hunting. I noticed that Joe and Paul had donned some clothes that looked like they had raided Zak’s closet. Don’t get me started on Zak and the word closet.
The Petrovaradin Fortress seemed to bring out a GA style of hysteria from the team. At one point Barry seemed to drop to his knees in fear and Kris pulled Barry’s head to her chest. That really smacks of the GA boys, or Brian running away, and really reminded me of the now defunct “Most Haunted” show. Which begs another question, why doesn’t Barry mix up the team? It’s always Barry/Kris, Paul/Susan, and Joe/Britt/Scott . Could it have something to do with Kris’ face to chest ghost hunting technique?
Paul managed to photograph an alleged shadow figure. The problem that I have with the picture is that the sound man, cameraman, Producer, and anyone else on the crew was not accounted for. Are we going to pretend that these people don’t exist?
All in all, I came away with some good laughs and a few hand to head moments. I loved the location and I enjoyed the creepy vibe of the show.
Having said all of that, I discovered that the Travel channel has a GA marathon. Sorry Syfy, I’m watching Ghost Adventures until game time.
